Normally I would write a small Perl script to be called with cron, but my employer doesn't want to support Perl . Now I've heard that you can request a url with cron directly somehow, but I don't know how. Can anybody help me?

I already have a script that does exactly this, but I'm not allowed to use it in the production environment, because they don't allow Perl to be used on the live systems. That's why I want to use that crontab. Thanks for your reply anyway.

That was what I needed, thanks. For now I'll be using the lynx -dump url job.
